Pasta with Tomato n Basil Sauce

I had this pasta but in the form of lasagne when i went to my sister-in-law's place.I like the lasagne very much specially the sauce which she prepared for lasagne so i use the same sauce with different form of pasta.It is very quick to make also as there is no baking time .

  • 2 cups pasta(any form of pasta)
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup capsicum(any colour capsicum)
  • 1/2 cup onion (or spring onions)
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup zuccini
  • 1 cup tomato basil sauce ( Or Fresh Basil and Tomato Sauce Seperately )
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chilli flakes
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • Cilantro(Coriander Leaves) for garnish

Cooking procedure:

Take 5 cups water in a deep sauce pan and let it boil .

Add a little salt and oil to boiling water to prevent pasta to stick to each other

Let it boil for 30 sec then add pasta shells .

Let it cook till tender and drain the water and run under cold water some 1 minute then drain again and keep the pasta aside as cold water will help the pasta to cool down quickly and prevent stickiness.

cut onion ,capsicum,zuccini length wise 1/2 inch strips

Heat oil in pan and add onion,garlic and saute for 2 mins

Add capsicum ,zuccini and saute for 3 mins
Next add the sauce to the above and cook it till the sauce binds nicely with veggies(approx 3 mins)

Add chilli flakes,salt to the above and mix it nicely

Add the cooked pasta to the above sauce and stir till the pasta blends nicely with the sauce

Add the grated cheese to the above and mix it well.

Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
